How did I manage to survive cancer and heart disease?

What was I doing that was different that kept me alive?

After major heart surgery just a few weeks ago, I sat on my hospital bed asking myself, what just happened.  Over the nine years of hell I had seen some medical mistakes that cost the lives of three of my family members, I was to be the fourth in the firing line of cancer.

After 2nd Cycle Chemotherapy-Douglas Fremlin

When I first went through chemotherapy, I decided to keep a journal. I wanted to just keep notes for my own sake, for a way to keep me driven to stay alive. This was edited a few times and I though why? I have left it as it was because for me this was a big part of what I wanted to share if I were to make it through. Make it through? For some unknown reason I knew if I fought hard enough, I would make it through. Have a listen to the video below, this is me on my way home after Cycle 1A-HyperCVAD, Chemotherapy regimen used for Lymphoma. I had Mantle Cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. was confident I was going to beat this thing, and I did.

On the way home from chemo, 1st bout and it’s the first time I have been so wacked on morphine, great fun, well! Looks like it, but took me 25 weeks of cold turkey to get off it and it wasn’t easy, and those spiders? Never again people. Seven times now after my heart attack I have been tested by the medical system, as in almost died, five of those times, because of one doctor. I almost never made it back after three heart attacks because of a medical mistake.

All said and Done! I am glad I still be here today to share my conversation with you.

Podcast coming soon and I hope you all will join me. Launch date will be posted for the podcast, leave your details below and I will keep you posted through whichever means best suits you.

If it will help others, and maybe save someone’s life! I am happy! If it helps just one person, I am also happy, and why should I help others?

Because I can! Thanks again and join me as I take you down a path, a journey of……..

Cancer to Confidence – The Series

To find the confidence you need to survive cancer and major heart issues, to die seven times in the process, came the next phase in my life and that was to share my journey in a podcast, blog, and/or video series.

Cancer to Confidence is that journey.

A 13-Episode series – Cancer to Confidence

Join me Monday, 11 June 2020.

Going through chemotherapy I ended up in ICU twice. On both occasions, according to the doctors, I died twice and in theory, should not have survived chemotherapy at all because of age and the regimen I went through by choice, HyperCVAD. After nine years, an issue created during chemotherapy that ruptured a main artery, nine years later it almost killed me three times in heart attacks in one day. But I survived!

I am 64 years old, and a Certified Wholistic Health Coach who has had the opportunity to challenge the system with an idea that through healthy living and proper nutrition, the human body could do more than we were led to believe.

This 13 series conversation was to help you the reader. To be able to give you the opportunity to look at health from a different perspective, from a healthy perspective, and live a healthier life than we were led to believe.

I survived with a smile, and this gave me that very reason to share with you how.

To share what drove me to challenge myself, more importantly, the system. This has been my lifetime journey.

Douglas Fremlin

Cancer to Confidence is about my journey through cancer, and major heart issues that eventuated from chemotherapy. The steps I took to survive life itself was grounded on knowledge. Knowledge that I could survive because I had the right people to seek advice on a global scale. Their knowledge, and what I had learnt along the way in life with regards to diet and nutrition I now know was what kept me alive, and very healthy.

This is for you if;
  • You are suffering or have suffered with cancer, or someone close you to has,
  • You have suffered with major heart disease, or someone close to you,
  • You have a concern, major or minor, about your health
Then this is definitely for you.

If you want to add another 10, 15, 25 very healthy years to your life!

This really is for you.

Challenge yourself!

Something to think about!

  • If you knew there was a way to share with as many as you could, show them what good health truly is all about and how easy it is, wouldn’t you want to tell them as well if they needed that help?
  • You could help someone else with their health, possibly save their life, you’d want to share that also, wouldn’t you?
  • Wouldn’t you want them to know that there are options to better health and a better life. Wouldn’t you share that with them?
  • What if that knowledge could help someone close to you, a friend, a neighbour, wouldn’t you want to share it?

Did The System Fail Us?

The system didn’t fail us, we failed ourselves! 

We simply forgot to question it.

If I were to ask that question of myself I don’t think I would know where to begin. In one family so many medical mistakes, and it’s okay by everyone? Well! It’s Not Okay!!

The medical mistakes I have been confronted with are many but here are a few for you. The mother of this family needed a quad bypass which they realised wasn’t needed only to find the patient had lung cancer. In one year a quad bypass and diagnosis with lung cancer from an xray that was taken from the wrong position. It was the final check to make sure surgery for the quad bypass had gone to plan. Shortly after, while still healing from the heart surgery, she commences chemotherapy for lung cancer. If it weren’t for that mistake by the radiologist they would not have found the cancer until it was too late.

Another, the second oldest daughter in the same family was diagnosed with bone degeneration to the state where, as the doctors said, ” it is bone rubbing against bone that is creating the problem and muscular issues. This person was sent to physio and put on an exercise regimen only to find out after an MRI two months later that was requested by the family did they find that this person had Myeloma. By this stage it was too late and had turned into Multiple Myeloma, she died three months after the MRI.

Another from the same family, fourth oldest son, was diagnosed with a double cancer, tongue and throat, but the system lost his paper work for eighteen weeks. When they finally realised eighteen weeks later he ended up at Emergency Department at the local hospital, they kept him in ED knowing for a fact that he was a cancer patient but they didn’t transfer him to their cancer ward. Nine hours later his oncologist saw him in ED and asked what he was doing there. He replied saying, “They were waiting for you as they could not find any paperwork in their system.” His siblings took a small break as he was doing well for 10 days over Christmas with their families as they had been there from September to Christmas in 2018. The medical team and Hospital at Home team were asked to ensure he was okay daily, they said he would have home vists each day and keep his siblings in touch while they were away, they did not.

What they also did was when the controlled morphene shots turned up at his place place, they also left all other medication and did not clear them out as they were told by his oncology team. They left him through the Christmas period with a partner who suffered badly with Multiple Sclerosis to administer medication. She made a mistake by giving him medication because she thought he was to still have the older medication as well. She overdosed with Oxycontin 1ml liquid at 300ml each day until she ran out and that was on top of the morphene drip he had in his arm with regular doses. The endone and oxycontin tablets overdosed as well and because of that mistake, that overdose, it eventually killed him almost one month later.

This wasn’t any family I met through research ..

… This in fact is my own family

Do I think the system has failed us? Yes! I have seen it too many times in my own family and it is unfortunate I am now seeing it adain with my partner going through mental health.

Coming Up Next!!!

“After losing fifteen of his friends to these murderers he had to face court as Crown Witness for the entirety of the court case. Re-living the memory and horror of what had happened each and every day.  This memory he still suffers with today. “

An introduction to where the system failed this man. How it could have killed him if it wasn’t noticed after a heart attack by his cardiac team.

The Endocrine System

Living the way we do now or living a long, healthy life!

Which would you choose?

Here are two different videos from YouTube, hope they make a little sense to why we must take care of our health. We must get a better understanding about nutrition for one simple reason, that is we expect to be in good health and live a long life and not live in one where there is a need for medication to keep us living.

Function of the Endocrine System;

  • Mechanism of action of steroid and non steroid hormones,
  • Major endocrine organs, functions and,
  • Negative feedback control.

The endocrine system is one of the two systems that are responsible for communication and integration between various body tissues, the other being the nervous system. Endocrine communication is achieved by means of chemical messengers called hormones. Hormones are produced in endocrine glands and secreted into the bloodstream to reach body tissues. A hormone can travel wherever the blood goes, but it can only affect cells that have receptors for it. These are called target cells.

Human endocrine system is a group of ductless glands that regulate body processes by secreting chemical substances called hormones. Hormones act on nearby tissues or are carried in the bloodstream to act on specific target organs and distant tissues. Diseases of the endocrine system can result from the over secretion or under secretion of hormones or from the inability of target organs or tissues to respond to hormones effectively.

The Immune System

While going through cancer I made a promise that I would find a way to help as many as I can. Well I have found it! Now is the start to sharing what I have learnt so you can see the benefits of sharing knowledge. Knowledge that is vital to a better understanding that through Good “Proper Nutrition”, A Good Diet and some exercise can keep you living healthier than we have ever been told

The Human Immune System is one of the front line workers in the human body. Basically, you need to keep this working well or you will end up dead, it’s as simple as that. An important point of interest, seventy percent (70%) of your immune system is in the gut.

Every second of your life you are under attack. Bacteria, viruses, spores and more living stuff wants to enter your body and use its resources for itself. The immune system is a powerful army of cells that fights like a T-Rex on speed and sacrifices itself for your survival. Without it you would die in no time.

This sounds simple but the reality is complex, beautiful and just awesome. An animation of the immune system. Every second of your life you are under attack.

Selenium is a very important trace mineral, and represents a vital nutrient for health and protection from oxidative damage.

It is a micronutrient essential for humans, and is a constituent of selenoproteins and glutathione peroxidases that play a vital role in DNA synthesis, thyroid hormone metabolism, reproduction, and also provide protection from infection and oxidative damage.

Furthermore, this micronutrient promotes a healthy heart, is required for metabolism, stimulates the immune system, and is an anti inflammatory.

  • Selenium protects from free radicals
  • Selenium boosts the immune system
  • Selenium is important for cardiovascular health
  • Selenium contributes to cancer prevention

Here is a short video to show the importance of Selenium to the human body and why we have so little left today.

The Importance of Protein and Why

Exactly how these proteins are made is the key to understanding why Dr. Wolfe’s formula in MyoHealth is so effective. Here’s Dr. Wolfe explaining just how your body creates protein.

When your body doesn’t ingest the essential amino acids it needs, it will start breaking down skeletal muscle to maintain vital organs and other functions. Your skeletal muscle is the body’s reservoir for essential amino acid when dietary sources are lacking.

The Human Body Facts

In a series I presented called What If? brings together the idea that if we learnt more about this intricate machine we call the human body. I wanted to share with you in a short video how important it is to understand that machine.

The human body is made up of a head, neck, torso, two arms and two legs. – The average height of an adult human is about 5 to 6 feet tall. – The human body is made to stand erect, walk on two feet, use the arms to carry and lift, and has opposable thumbs (able to grasp). This video explores the following parts of the human body system: – Circulatory System (heart, blood, vessels) – Respiratory System (nose, trachea, lungs) – Immune System (many types of protein, cells, organs, tissues) – Skeletal System (bones) – Excretory System (lungs, large intestine, kidneys) – Urinary System (bladder, kidneys) – Muscular System (muscles) – Endocrine System (glands) – Digestive System (mouth, oesophagus, stomach, intestines) – Nervous System (brain, spinal cord, nerves) – Reproductive System (male and female reproductive organs)

One Man On A Mission- Dr Joel Wallach

For many years I have believed that food was the cause of illness and was also it’s healer. How true was it? Absolutely right! I saw the changes in my family in just a short few years and couldn’t understand why. This video might answer some of the questions.

What Just Happened?

I have spent a lifetime learning about the human body and the diseases that can, and will, come to get you at some stage in life. It makes no difference how well we take care of our bodies the ultimate end will be with a disease of some sort that will halt us in our lives to think, “What Just Happened?” Mine was cancer. Imagine you get confronted with getting told you don’t have too long to live. You have gone from a person with so much determination to start a new life in a new city, in a new state to a person who was now fighting for life and with three to six months to live. Certainly makes you stop and think, “What just happened? Why Me?”

Before Chemo I was as healthy as could be and on my way to Brisbane from Adelaide with my partner to set up a new music school and he was going to work in the indigenous community but cancer got in the way in late 2012.

Even with a smile after ICU for 10 nights and 11 days getting told they had to bring me back twice because I almost never made it back. Tough times but I had to keep a positive attitude, I knew I had something to say.

Now putting chemo behind me after eight years there is a move in my life towards sharing all the learning with regards to living an awesome life as healthy as nature planned for as long as the body will allow naturally.

In that time of going through the start and now eight years later of chemotherapy I came to realise that there was another way, as I was told as a child, to heal many diseases without the need for either pharmaceuticals and/or surgery. My research for thirty plus years has now shown me that I was right all the way along about how important nutrition and the understanding of it was. Why it was hidden from us all along. Well! Not so much hidden but not taught as a basic of life and now all I want to do is share what I have come to learn with as many as I possibly can.

Helping others has always been at the fore front of everything I do or have done in my life and I am certain I will continue to do so until the day I am no more.

It’s easy and it is made so simple to share, to spread the word about;

Our Mission – to get Everyone Healthy and,

Our Plan – Connecting People.

To make it happen means sharing so if you would like more info, just message me and I will get back to you.

Heal Thyself

After spending a lifetime looking at and practising holistic healing comes a documentary like this.
Call it faith in mother nature, call it an old art but healing is as pure as one of Mother Nature’s greatest creations, the human body. I have always been taught the human body is more resilient than we have been told and if the holistic healers of today to the holistic healers of ancient times knew this, why was this learning, this form of healing blacklisted? The answer has been pretty clear since the first medicine modern man had faith in and that was the aspirin.HEAL, the documentary goes into in-depth look at the world today and where we are going wrong as a race, as a species.Take time out, download to watch but my suggestion is but it. At $9.99 US it will be a great add to your library it is that good.

Cancer and You

I want to share my thoughts before, during and post cancer.  I want to also share with you how it can come and come fast and what it does to you when and if it comes to get you.  Cancer is second biggest killer globally and yet I found with a little know how and get up and go, this disease that is growing killing the world slowly can be tamed before you even get there. I was a very healthy person before cancer. Great diet. Exercise and all that and yet I contracted cancer so I started looking into it deeper and researching it to find out what can be done to protect yourself from this disease in advance. What you can do even when you are diagnosed to help yourself and to keep you strong. Not an easy task dying four times through cancer but I’m still here because I listened to the doctor’s, I just didn’t take all their advice.

Just remember, it doesn’t only effect you so don’t be so silent about your journey through cancer, it effects all the people around you who are close.  Family, dear friends, nurses, doctors, who will be there to give you all the support you need, give you strength as you fight this battle and the show you courage to be strong as you fight this nasty bug.  More importantly it gives you the time to stay positive as you concentrate and focus on kicking this bug in the you know where.

‘Staying Positive’ is one of the most important things you can ever do. Nothing Is Terminal! 

Only What We Do To Our Bodies Decides That.

I would also love to share with you what I did, what the “Juju” is that I am using to ensure good health, youthful feel for life and longer time living my life as healthy as it was meant to be.  I am now sixty two and the healthiest I have ever been for a very long time.  This site is about how I went from three to six months from being six foot under to how I challenged the system and the way my health was to be able to make it through cancer. To stay alive with both allopathic medicine, chemo and the mass of pills and otherwise, and organic, holistic medicines as they did centuries ago.  Well! You can say it worked as I am still here. 
My idea was to share it around with as many as I possibly could so they can see that there are alternative medicines that can help with so many different diseases we have today and what can change in your life in a short period of time.

Do I Think The World Is Crazy Part Two

Absolutely I Do!

Over the years of research into cancer I came to see a pattern forming. From the turn of the century we started to see more viruses and more diseases. Many point to the growth of so many varieties of medication on the market and in the early days testing wasn’t as stringent as they are today. Hence forth a lot of medication on the market that were still being used in animal trials and not even get to the stage of human testing before being authorized by FDA for sale.

What I came to learn is that “proper” nutrition in our daily intake of foods has been depleted over time. People started taking supplements to boost their system because of the ‘proper nutrition’ we feed our bodies daily, or lack thereof should I say. Our every day vegetables from the supermarket or vege shop have very little, if any at all, nutrition because of many factors.

Over farming, over spraying with chemicals and depletion of all nutrition from the soil and of course hydroponics. It meant that the very basics we were eating required more volume to get what the mind and body required to keep the body, as a whole, functioning well enough to survive and survive well. We all know what happens when we eat more than we should and down the track a piece problems commence with health. We don’t plan for this to happen but in my opinion, the lack of advice from ‘the system’ has meant that for over one hundred years we have been misled into thinking that all foods we buy today are good for us and of course over time it became habit for the different generations and we all think it is okay. Let me say that if we all wanted to kill ourselves slowly we can but leaving that decision up to the corporates with no regard to human health, I feel it is time we came to understand that the nutrition we are told about that exists in foods today is not true. Soils have been depleted worldwide from nutrition, hydroponics have become an easy way to grow food in mass so where does the nutrition that Mother Nature gives us in foods, blowing in the wind with the dust I guess.

Soil depletion resources.

Dear EarthTalk: What’s the nutritional difference between the carrot I ate in 1970 and one I eat today? I’ve heard that that there’s very little nutrition left. Is that true?

Do I Think The World is Crazy?

Absolutely I Do!

One of the things I have tried to learn more about in my life was what keeps the human body in a position of optimal health to live our lives as Mother Nature had planned. Given the right food, the right nutrition and exercise we can actually live longer and healthier than we do in this modern day and age.

So, my question is, “What changed along the way in time?”

“The other is the surge of diseases that became apparent, as time went by, was through the initial trial period of “the pill.”

This is a review from the National Library of Medicine in the United States by A H Decherney. Clin Obstet Gynecol. 1981 Sep.

“Available evidence is reviewed for the following medical disorders: central nervous system disorders (depression, Wilson’s disease, headaches, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, and the eye); immunologic and connective tissue diseases; diseases of the endocrine system, the gastrointestinal system, the genitourinary system, the memopoietic system; and skin disorders. 7% of women on OCs have increased or newly reported depression. Whether these are primarily psychogenic or metabolically derived is yet to be definitively determined.” (Source-NIH.) 

It makes you wonder why a system that had promised to protect you and your health treat you like guinea pigs and with little regard for the health of a patient. You go figure.

To Be Continued.
